Event Details

Linda Carone is a jazz and blues vocalist, a niche song stylist and interpreter of now-vintage, then popular, music from the 1920’s and beyond. With a voice that has been described as beautiful, rich and pure, Ms. Carone’s natu-ral approach to music has shaped her vocal style in a way that is playful, intimate and unpretentious. Linda’s uncanny ability to carefully curate songs that fit her voice like a glove has gained her the attention of new listeners and devoted fans alike. Linda succeeds in her aim to transcend the heart of the song – sans imitation.

An early passion for jazz and blues developed upon first hearing the raw and emotive melancholy of Billie Holiday. ‘It was Billie’s voice that ignited the songstress in me.’

This inspiration laid the foundation for growth as a vocalist with an eclectic reper¬toire of forgotten gems, classic jazz and swing standards to boogie-woogie & roots blues. Linda’s long-time musical journey was further influenced by vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Mildred Bailey, Helen Humes, Valaida Snow and Lil Hardin Armstrong. Featuring these pioneering musical women in her performances remains her forté to this day.

Linda’s debut release, Black Moonlight quickly gained local and international airplay as well as winning song and video awards and reviews. Similarly, Linda’s forthcom¬ing album Lemon Twist, is expected to be met with similar excitement as new fans will discover and hear a voice that is as rare and distinct as the repertoire she uncovers and the songs she chooses to sing.
